The original Melly Teddy was made for her a few years ago when I had just started to crochet.  Friends of mine loved it and ordered from me, and slowly but surely the bunny you see emerged, and after nearly 2 years of writing, rewriting, testing and making changes to the pattern it was released in July 2019 as a FREE crochet along.

The latest edition to the Melly Teddy Ragdoll Family is Eliah Ellie, who was inspired and designed for a special friend of mine, who has two brand new grand babies who live in Dubai.  The little boy is Elijah and the little girl is Hannah, and the name Eliah was made up using a part of each of the names.

The pattern will be released in 6 parts over 3 weeks and you can get each part separately FOR FREE with the Crochet Along.  All you need to do is to join my Face Book Group here.
